How can I connect to Semji with my Google account?

So you don't have to remember a new password ;-)


Why connect to Semji with your Google account?

When you want to create an account on the Semji platform, you can decide to choose a login email associated with a password. You can also choose to connect to Semji using your Google account. This second option means you don't need to create a new password specifically for Semji. In this way, you centralize access to your various tools and software on the same email-password pair, which has the advantage of being particularly secure.

How do I connect to Semji with my Google account?

Logging in for the first time

If you're logging in for the first time, you'll be asked to create an account. A "Connect with Google" button appears. 

connexion à Semji
You are then invited to choose the associated Google Account (you can have more than one).

compte google
Once you've chosen the account you want, you'll be asked to confirm the association in a new window. 

Congratulations, you've created your Semji account!

Reconnecting to Semji after registration

For all future use of Semji, you will be prompted to sign in using your Google account. You'll then be taken to a login screen, and a "Sign in with Google" button will appear.

I can't connect to Semji with my Google account. What should I do?

Are you getting an error message when trying to register or reconnect to Semji with your Google Account?

Blocking third-party tools and data

The solution proposed by Google is as follows: 

When enabled, this privacy feature disables all cookies and iframe storage, which is required by Google to securely authenticate the user.

One solution is to ask users who have disabled third-party data to create an exception for https://accounts.google.com by adding accounts.google.com to the allowed domains. In Chrome, this is done in chrome: // settings / content / cookies.

If this feature is enabled for many users (some companies apply this setting to all their employees), another workaround is to implement a server-side OAuth 2.0 flow

Private browsing with Chrome on iOs 

Google Connection is currently not supported in private browsing mode on Chrome on iOS.

Using Safari with Intelligent Tracking Prevention

This new feature in macOS High Sierra and iOS 11 disables third-party cookies every 24 hours, unless the user is interacting with one of the third-party domain pages. As the Google login library relies on cookies to securely authenticate the user, it will potentially detect that the user is logged out every 24 hours. The user must restart the login process to reactivate the cookies.
